The way I see everything!!!

Back to the Pavilion!!!

Well, the time has come… The vacation has ended… The doc says I am alrite and can get back to work!!! How… Exciting… (obvious tone of sarcasm n boredom). Well, for those who have not been keepin abreast of whats been happenin in my life(which is basically the rest of the world except me), I was in Mumbai for almost 9 days… Was unwell. U know, this is the part i hate… ‘Unwell’ is such a soft word! It can never do justice to how ‘unwell’ I actually was… But then, that is a different story altogether… In the last 10 odd days, I
1. realised that half of the worlds population lives in the local trains of Mumbai.
2. found out that the formula for finding the actual cost price of any dress in Mumbai is the Quoted Price/2. In case of decent shops, it is Quoted Price/3.
3. found out that there are cheats with fancy restaurants who sell sugarcane juice for 20 Rs per glass. N the next shop sells the same shit for Rs. 3 per glass!!! So, when it comes to food items… there is no specific formula for actual Cost Price… it is determined thru years of experience.
4. realised that The best place for a free body massage is the Mumbai local trains… provided u can bear stinkin arm pits…
5. Created my own Blog!!! Wrote one article, begged a cpl o friends to read it and post their comments, and actually replied back to the comments (like they are gonna visit my blog again ever!).
6. Came to the conclusion that my family doctor is a genius. Well, he is the only one who can cure my perennial ulcers (Oxymoron???).
7. My Dad cant drive a car for peanuts. Neither can I!
8. Any car is only as goodas its driver,… So our Ford Icon is a worthless bauble.
9. Nothin can ever beat home food!
10. Meetin up with an old friend is one of the most refreshing things ever! It can keep u smilin for till the bill for the dinner comes!
11. Restaurants in Mumbai cant make Hyderabadi Biryani. Their idea of the same is Green Chutney mixed with rice! Help!!!
12. Our cable tv operator has no movie sense… and he actually puts soft porn (May i add lousy too) after the last football match of the day is over!
13. Nobody is indispensible. I was not there for 10 days, and nobody missed me @ work! Not that I made a lotta contribution at work.
14. Mumbai is just as sultry as Chennai… So i should stop comparin the 2 cities.
15. All Dads love travellin by King Fisher Airlines… while I always have the pleasure of travelling in Indian Airlines! When ll they change their service approach? They can be lousy! They are lousy!
16. Football is low scoring as compared to cricket… but Lotsa fun!!! I an become an expert in analysing post match performance even without knowing A,B,C of football! 🙂

Basically that winds up my break. Work Beckons… As Arnie put it… Ill Be Back… (Like it is gonna make a difference! 🙂 Adios!!!
